Socialism has never been tried full-scale, as Capitalism has. We have unfettered Capitalism Globally for 200 years, and NOWHERE, and I mean NOWHERE has this produced a population that is sound, healthy, informed and at Peace.”
I’m not gonna say it’s time to hoard up, board up, arm up and batten down.
They are. You see, according to a Trader speaking with the BBC yesterday, total collapse is coming within the year. And this, like totally rocks it out man, because, you know, like the Depression, they can make sooo much money off it dudes… cuz they know how to.
Its not like its just miss doom and gloom here, warning you for the last 4 years or so that this was coming anymore. No, not one of my apocalyptic fictions this time, nor screeds about how the rich don’t care about us useless eaters. In fact why bother telling you the sky is falling on everyone but a few demonic souls, or repeating rants about how Class Warfare is killing us? I used to feel like a prophet in the wilderness, speaking a secret code no one got but me and a few of my kindreds. We knew governments and votes were Kabuki. We yelled it from mountaintops, “Money talks, bullshit walks and they just bought your feet.”
The code isn’t so secret anymore. In fact, they aren’t just overt about it, they are brazen.
There will be no recovery. You either have enough to invest in buying out the broke now, and invest in hedging your bets, insuring yourself against the inevitable losers.
“We don’t really care that much about ‘how do we fix the economy’ ‘how do we fix the whole situation. Our job is to make money off it.”
If this doesn’t send shivers down your spine and make your anus clench for dear life, you are delusional. Wall Street and the Uber-Wealthy don’t give a damn about your economy, your jobs, your food, even your consumption of goods. THEIR entire economy operates above and separate of all that. Its all investment and gambling all the time. Your crash=their profit.
It’s the Greatest Little Whorehouse on Earth, and they themselves would inoculate their own prostitutes with syphilis and invest in the undertaker’s guild for a buck. You know, after insuring the brothel heavily so that when it closed due to dead employees, they would get a pay off there too. Oh, and be sure to petition the government for bailout money to rebuild the town, so they could run the whole scam again.
“The saving of millions of people are going to vanish.”
Your grandparents don’t sound so whack-o now when they buried money in the yard, kept petty cash in the bedsprings, and hid their gold in the walls.
I know you all want your quarterly interests, and that pulling it out early always sounds like a bummer. I’m telling you, you leave it in that diseased hole, its gonna bite it right off. Pull your cash now. Turn it into property, gold, or just stash it.
Sounds like I’ve gone over the edge, doesn’t it. Next I’ll be telling you to stockpile food and ammo. Stockpile food and ammo. Most people haven’t enough to last a month. I don’t. Yet.
“Personally, I’ve been dreaming of this moment for three years.”
“I dream of another recession.”
Our suffering, our collective rape, is an investor’s wet dream. Why is the stock market so robust for GS? Because the rich are not afraid at all, they are quivering like a thoroughbred at the gate, waiting for the race to beat all races: Total Financial Global Domination. I wonder if you have to wear a special hat for that? French milliners lining up throwing their Kentucky Derby creations to the wind. This, my dahlinks, is the only race…
“The Governments don’t rule the World. Goldman-Sachs rule the World.”
Let me ask you a question. Have ANY of the Arab Spring movements resulted in People Power or any type of Social Democracy for their people? Have even one of these countries nationalized the industries that stole all their assets and ran them with an iron fist?
No, they have been co-opted with assigned leaders, and the “help” of our private sector setting up another puppet Capitalist government they can profit off of.
Has our own Occupation of Wall Street not been met with the toasting and spraying the demonstrators with champagne?
Its not just their utter disdain for us, its they are excited to see us fail.
I am just as positive they long for a little violence so they can crush it, fill people with fear, show them “who’s in charge, here.” Besides, Christians against the lions is so very fun to watch.
Mother Jones said it is a failed movement because there is no United Message.
It’s true, in a way, all of our complaints from the environment to the economy, from corruption to foreign conflict are SYMPTOMS not the disease.
It’s not just a bad economy – it’s a bad SYSTEM that is set up to provide rewards for exploiting someone else. It will only fail if the people don’t come to realize the root cause.
Do you reward your 7 year old when he steals someone’s lunch, or tricks them out of their allowance for selling them pyrite as gold? Do you reward your 15 year old for collecting “protection money” at the bus stop?
That is EXACTLY what our current system does. And they do it with complete impunity. As Noam Chomsky put it, they are not just too big to fail, they are too big to JAIL.
This is no Democracy anymore – It is fascism. Business runs the world.
It is not ‘survival of the fittest – it is survival of the most psychopathic. Psychopathy is a mental disorder characterized primarily by a lack of empathy and remorse, shallow emotions, egocentricity, very deep egocentricity, and deceptiveness.
Kind of sounds like saying “You have been dreaming of an economic collapse, because you will get rich off of it.” In fact, it sounds EXACTLY like that.
Moderates will say, reform is enough. It worked for a while after ’29, didn’t it? They will say I hang on to a ‘failed” ideology of Socialism or Communism. What could be a more failed ideology than Capitalism? Time after time, it funnels money into the hands of the few, thus corrupting the system. It fails its people every time.
Socialism has never been tried full-scale, as Capitalism has. We have unfettered Capitalism Globally for 200 years, and NOWHERE, and I mean NOWHERE has this produced a population that is sound, healthy, informed and at Peace.
Socialism has only been tried under a fierce and without morals opponent in the Exploitation Capitalist cabal that funnels untold arms and monies to crush it and open it for their rape. Still, they have less economic strife than we do now.
Personally I want wipe the smug smiles off of their faces, and give every CEO a personal life sentence of doing “America’s Dirties Jobs” shown on live TV, with balls and chains around their ankles.
You can dream of our collapse, investors; because we will be plotting yours.
Its not the economy, stupid, it’s the class war, stupid and the need for a real REVOLUTION to reboot the very system into something sane not psychopathic.
And we do it soon, or…..
